I have a collection of scarves that dates back to the ‘80s (yes….the previous century). I refuse to call them “vintage” because that would put ME in the same category, but they are cherished accessories and I dig them out when I need to add a special touch to an outfit.

These cute little felted coffee cup sleeves are a stylish replacement for those utilitarian brown paper sleeves that get thrown onto your $5 latte. Fashion meets function when you put one of these warm coffee cozies onto your travel mug or Starbuck’s grande mochaccino. [Read more…]
These are the easiest, quickest, softest……. and YUMMIEST cookies you can ever make. They are so simple, and can be mixed with a spoon (with a bit of bicep work!), so even the littlest cooks can mix these up with ease. The best part is “customizing” your cookies with the flavor of cake mix and the mix-ins you can add before baking. Really – the combinations are endless, and so much FUN to create! [Read more…]

A day without a headband……is a day I will never know! Whether it’s the gym, school, or even a lunch date, I have a headband to match (well, kind of) my outfit and keep my hair from falling in my face. I have an off-the-charts head circumference, so I was never able to find a band that was comfortable and didn’t slide off my head…..SO, discovering the non-slip qualities of velvet lead to these fabulous SUPER EASY ribbon headbands that can be customized to fit ANY head!
